The Dead Sea Scrolls have been an asset in the debate regarding two major and well disputed books of the Old Testament, Daniel and Isaiah. Conservative scholars maintained that Daniel was written in the sixth century . as the author declares in the first chapter. The New Testament writers treated Daniel as a prophetic book with predictive prophecies. Non-biblical books included the Book of Enoch, Sayings of Moses, Book of Jubilee, Book of Noah, Testament of Levi and the Wisdom of Solomon.

More than two thousand years ago a dedicated group of religious visionaries - the Essenes or "Sons of Light" - fled the opulence of Jerusalem and sequestered themselves in a desert stronghold at Qumran to forge a purer, more spiritual way of life. The Dead Sea Scrolls that they transcribed and secreted away in limestone caves would lie hidden until their sensational discovery in 1947. Words of Light reconstructs the daily lives of the Essenes, for whom every act was a form of spiritual discipline. Culling from his own translations of the most evocative passages from the scroll texts, as well as drawing on historical accounts and recent archaeology, Hebrew scholar Dr. Ken Hanson has created a little book of desert virtues - and a handbook of spiritual living for contemporary readers. Words of Light shows how we may share in the timeless vision of the Sons of Light, with its emphasis on community, simplicity, learning and perseverance, to achieve spiritual wealth, contentment and serenity.
Reviews about Words of Light: Spiritual Wisdom from the Dead Sea Scrolls (3):
Doomblade
Ken Hanson's original translations of portions of the Dead Sea Scrolls bring to life the quiet, peaceful, and utterly spiritual life of the ancient Essenes. Those on a modern spiritual journey can find within the pages of this book a sense of the holy, and are reminded that, through the simplification of one's life, inner peace can be found even in today's busy, materialistic society.

This was a fascinating insight into the ancient Essens, writers of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and how they sought a simpler more peaceful life.
The book is a beautiful instruction guide to achieve a life of freedom and happiness.
